Ohio's Abandoned Van Gorder Manor is Being Restored

The old manse is located in Willoughby

This was the story of Van Gorder Manor, a once-abandoned home located in Willoughby, Ohio — but a new chapter is being writ as we speak. This historic home is getting a new life as a fine dining restaurant, B&B and event space; it's a transformation we can't wait to see.
